      Unknown gunmen have reportedly killed 15 Fulani herdsmen in the latest bout of violence in northern Nigeria’s herding communities.

      The Police Command’s Spokesman, DSP Mohammed Shehu confirmed this to newsmen in Gusau.

      He said that the killing was perpetrated by gunmen who came in large numbers and attacked the village in the early hours of Wednesday, shooting sporadically.

      “The villagers who were taken unawares were quick to alert a nearby mobile police patrol team which ca me and engaged the bandits in a gun battle. “The policemen overpowered the bandits even as many of them escaped with gunshot wounds,”‎ Shehu said.

      He, however, urged members of the public to be on alert to report to the nearest authority anyone seen with bullet wounds and seeking medical attention.

      “Armed bandits attacked Bawon-Daji village yesterday and killed 15 people,” the police spokesman for Zamfara state, Muhammad Shehu, told AFP.

      Its really sad we’ve gotten to a point in this life when people being murdered seems very convenient. Even hearing people being killed is almost normal the sad emotion and compassion that is supposed to be felt is watered down.

      No one is actually safe in any country. One should always be at alert.
